The year started with Deepika Padukone in the headlines with the least expected Padmaavat debacle and also ended with her and Ranveer Singh’s much-awaited wedding. It was a big big year for the actress. The biggest movie of her career, Padmaavat released on 25th January 2018 after much struggle and it went on to earn enough to keep the blabbering mouths shut. The movie was a huge hit and everybody loved its screenplay, the performances, and the songs.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for making grand music sequences in his movies, take, for example, Dola Re Dola in Devdas, Deewani Mastani in Bajirao Mastani, Nagaad Sang Dhol in Ram Leela and in Padmaavat, Ghoomar was that song with Deepika Padukone taking the centre stage. Just upon the release of the song in October 2017, the song trended like how! Deepika’s grace, poise, and hard work, everything added to make it visually so appealing that it even surpassed the trolls on her unibrow. The song is so popular, that even after a year, we are writing about it.
Well, recently, a Deepika Padukone fan shared a video of the song on the internet and it went viral in seconds. The reason is that in this fan video, he gave the traditional folk, Ghoomar a western twist with Shakira’s hit song, Hips Don’t Lie. He clubbed the audio of Hips Don’t Lie with Deepika dancing on Ghoomar song. What’s really interesting are the perfectly matched steps to the beats of the song which will surely bring a smile to your face.
Before we talk about it any further, here, have a look at the video first:
There have been other such clubbing of Indian dance and western music videos on the internet but this really can even be called better than the original. Padmaavat was Deepika’s only release last year. An unnamed Vishal Bhardwaj movie starring Deepika Padukone and her Piku co-star, Irrfan Khan was supposed to go on floor last year but it got delayed owing to the latter’s ongoing treatment for a rare neuroendocrine tumour.
But she announced her next project with the Raazi director, Meghna Gulzar, titled Chapaak. The movie will throw light on the story of the country’s most popular acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal. Her story is nothing short of inspiring as the strong-willed woman not only survived the attacked, she also became a campaigner with Stop Acid Attacks who speaks and fights for the rights of acid attack victims.
The film also stars Vikrant Massey who has been a part of movies like Lootera, Dil Dhadakne Do, lipstick Under My Burkha and Half Girlfriend. Earlier there were reports that Rajkummar Rao would play the part but eventually, the team zeroed it down to Vikrant Massey. The release date hasn’t been announced yet.
Deepika Padukone fans are really looking forward to watching her on the big screen after her small sabbatical. Till then, watch the Ghoomar-Hips Don’t Lie fan video on loop!
